on undecided voters. my favorite quotes of the week

October 26, 2008

“there are three kinds of voters in america, according to the pollsters.  about forty-five percent firmly committed to the democrats, forty-five percent for the republicans, and in the middle about ten percent who can’t go outside in the rain because they might stare upwards with their mouths open and drown.”

-peter sagal, host of wait wait…don’t tell me! on npr

 

“To put them in perspective, I think of being on an airplane. The flight attendant comes down the aisle with her food cart and, eventually, parks it beside my seat. ‘Can I interest you in the chicken?’ she asks. ‘Or would you prefer the platter of shit with bits of broken glass in it?’

To be undecided in this election is to pause for a moment and then ask how the chicken is cooked.”

-david sedaris, in the new yorker
